with the 9xxx and newer drivers the UseEvents option is the big one,
afaik its fixed HD output tearing for everyone, that and enabling the
VSync options in nvidia-settings should make things perfect.

I don't think the kernel hardware deinterlacer works. I tried it too
and it did nothing. Granted I'm using a 6200TC, but it's not falling
back to my secondary choice either which makes me think the secondary
system doesn't work or that Myth thinks the Kernel (HW) deinterlacer
is working when its actually not (or not implemented yet?). Either way
my CPU is way more than capable of handling deinterlacing in the CPU
even for 1080i so I just set it to the software Kernel deinterlacer.
